About the Hong Luck Kung Fu Club:

Hong Luck Kung Fu Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the teaching, promotion and advancement of the traditional Chinese arts of Kung Fu, Lion Dancing and Dragon Dancing. We put on spectacular lion dance and dragon dance shows for Lunar New Year, weddings, birthdays, business openings and corporate events.

About the Happy Dance Group:

Happy Dance Group is a group of Chinese women from the Regent Park area who meet and dance on a weekly basis to popular Chinese music. They’ve been around for about 7 years and their membership consists mostly of seniors with an average age of 70. The Happy Dance Group dance so they can feel happy, refreshed and get some exercise. Inspired by the large dance events that routinely occur in places such as parks and public squares in China, their group brings the joy of dance to public spaces.
